I wonder who voted for 12GB+
I now have 4GB installed. It's enough for me now.
I was between 2GB of DDR3 and 4GB of DDR2 so I got 8GB of DDR2.
I have 504MB Hyundai (Which is now Hynix) DDR 166MHz SD RAM.
4 GB of Corsair XMS2. Serves me very well in Vista.
8gb. there was a sweet deal I couldn't pass up, and I figured it can do no harm..
2gb. 3 or 4 is on the medium term battle plan though, especially if I get a new motherboard or Windows 7.
anyone still on a 32bit OS? im stunned to see Windows 7 having a 32bit version, they really need to just kill 32bit from now on.
Perhaps MS didn't kill the 32-bit OS since there are not much apps/games for 64-bit OS... :hmm:
ps. Vista x64
Well I can understand it to a point, but 4gb is soon going to be the defacto standard, right? and with i7 and triple ram configs, 32bit just doesn't cut it.
Also apps like photoshop with a 64bit EXE run so much better, can access more ram etc.
I'm still running 32 bit. XP...... hardware won't go any higher and there's no new system in the works.
I voted 1gb, The other 2 systems are at 512 right now..... I will probaply get up to 2 gig on these systems, beyond that my apps run well on 32bit XP so I don't see the need.
Yeah you are correct that point of 4GB becoming standard. Yeah I agree on PS but the 3.2GB of ram usage is fine for me, and some 32-bit plugins won't work...
4 Gig DDR2 Corsair XMS2-6400C4 TwinX in Dual Cannel setup.
8GB OCZ, it wasn't very expensive, so why not? I remember buying a 128MB PC100 module for twice more money
I have 2x1GB DDR2 ram, but i plan to go to 2x2GB of DDR2 ram. I believe that already the 2GB ram seem insufficient with modern games.
Then i will move to ddr3 (for triple channel) as soon as we have a drop at the price.
I thought 4 GB became standard long ago. I have 4GB and XP 32bit, so ~700MB is wasted. The sad thing is I bought my RAM when it was ridiculously expensive (like 10x more than now).
I agree it's surprising that they are making a 32bit version of Windows 7. I mean, soon 1GB of video ram will become standard, and what about monsters like 4870 X2? Try using a pair of those with a 32bit OS, he he
12GB DDR3 Triple channel (6x2gb)
alternatively, i was running 16GB DDR2 for awhile there....
never used it all, but the system sure was one speedy machine.... it's quite interesting how going from 4gb to 8gb is noticeable, and how 8gb to 16gb is also just as noticeable... even though you arn't using the full potential of even 8gb... i guess windows just likes to stretch it's legs when it has the chance.
My next OS will be 64 bit for sure, but it didn't make sense when I bought this copy of Vista (had only 512mb at the time).
I might try things out with PAE for a while, but when I move to windows 7 it'll definitley be 64 bit. I can understand why less tech orientated users might fear the change, but t's up to the likes of Microsoft to make this easy, and by all accounts they do.
At the moment I do just fine with 2gb, but I can see where more would make a big difference.
Yeah im guessing our audience maybe more so than the masses.....
